Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
October 13, 2019 – Sunday
Gospel: Luke 17:11-19
“ Stand up and go, your faith has saved you.”
Here is a sample story of 10 lepers who were healed, yet only 1 came back to thank Jesus. Are we like those 9, pleading when we’re sick, yet forgetting to say thank you when healed?
We have to be steadfast in our faithfulness to the Lord, come high and low water, constant in our faith radar, no discouragements. When feeling low, say the Rosary, visit the Adoration Chapel, cry if we must. But stay close to the Lord, no demands, no bribing, no ex-deals ( we do that sometimes).
Let’s ask Mama Mary to help us in our journey, let’s imitate her humility and faithfulness.
